Dear Student Group Leaders,

Please read the following announcements carefully:

>> General Body Meeting: April 5th, 5-7 PM ET

>> CAC space reservation is open for the next academic year

>> Finboard Survey

>> LEF/ARCADE applications DUE


General Body Meeting 4/5/21, 5:00-7:00 PM ET

Our spring General Body Meeting will be the evening of April 5th from 5:00-7:00 PM ET. We will send out an agenda including any documents to review before the meeting and Zoom link at least one week before that date. The new ASA board will be elected at this meeting, so if you are interested in who will be leading student advocacy for student groups next year, it’s important to attend to have a voice!

The same rules apply as for a normal GBM: FSILGs, graduate dorms, and club sports may attend if they wish to but are not required to do so. ASA groups are still required to send one member per group, but you may represent as many groups as you like, and each attendee can only exercise one vote.

We recognize that there will inevitably be groups that have no members who can attend: understanding how crazy life is right now, we’d like to avoid any situation where groups get penalized for not attending the GBM, so there will be online make-up resources with all critical information. However, this is an important time for the ASA and SOLE to hear directly from groups about what issues are going on so we know where we can provide support or advocate for more resources, so attendance from as many groups as possible is preferred.


CAC space reservation is open for the next academic year

CAC space reservation for the academic year, 2021 to 2022 has opened. Dates covered are September 8, 2021 through May 21, 2022. CAC spaces include Stratton Student Center (W20), Kresge Auditorium, Walker Memorial, Religious Activities Center (W11), MIT Chapel, Wong Auditorium, Lobby 13, Memorial Lobby, Vest Student Street, and select outdoor areas on campus.  Please note that Institute policy will dictate when and how in-person events can occur again; CAC continues to strongly encourage you to have virtual event backup plans. All information is at this link<https://studentlife.mit.edu/cac/resources-forms>.

If you should have any questions, please contact CAC at cacscheduling at mit.edu



Finboard Survey

Finboard wants to know what questions you have about the application process! Confused about deadlines? Want to know how appeals work? Just click here<https://forms.gle/FroSV3WE7svSuqTY8> and fill out this single-question form.



Application for LEF/ARCADE Funds due TONIGHT

If your group would like to hold a virtual event in the coming months that you believe satisfies the requirements for events that would normally be covered by the grants for on-campus events (http://asa.mit.edu/group-resources/funding-large-events), please fill out the application at: https://engage.mit.edu/submitter/form/start/465604. If you have any questions, please reach out to <asa-treasurer at mit.edu<mailto:asa-treasurer at mit.edu>> and we can discuss. We are happy to work with groups to fund their ideas for virtual events to support any way our campus can stay connected or groups can adapt to a virtual environment!

We're combining the Winter and Spring cycles, so we'll evaluate the Winter cycle applications on a rolling basis, but the last applications for this semester will occur with a deadline of March 1, and a late deadline of March 8.


We hope you are all doing well and staying safe; as always, please feel free to email <asa-exec at mit.edu> with any requests, questions, or other inquiries.


The ASA Executive Board
